Sunday sees Arsène Wenger make his last trip to Manchester United as Arsenal boss; somewhere he has been on the end of extreme highs and lows.
From winning the Premier League title in 2002, to seeing his side’s 49-game unbeaten run ended, or even getting beaten 8-2 in 2011, games between the two rarely lack for drama.
The Gunners will want to end their current ten-game winless run at United. Especially as it José Mourinho, Wenger’s arch-rival in charge at Old Trafford. This is one last chance for the ‘specialist in failure’, to get one over his rival.
With their second leg Europa League semi final next Thursday, changes upfront will be made with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang expected to return to the side.
